Ann Marie’s silky vocals are inspired by a past era of R&B, she isn’t a throwback though; her blend of hip-hop cadences and traditional R&B melodies isn’t contrived for the purpose of inspiring nostalgia.




The Experience

“Hailing from our Nation’s Capital, rapper-singer-songwriter The Experience is putting his own soulful spin on the sounds that built the DMV’s music scene. Born-and-raised in DC into a household full of musicians, a young EXP would often find himself tagging along to his father’s gigs with the legendary GoGo bands Heaven Sent and Arye Rayde. After spending countless evenings watching his father jam out, his early introduction to GoGo would eventually inspire him to pick up the drums at the age of two and the rest, as they say, is history.


The Experience’s irresistibly bouncy sound blends elements of Hip-Hop, R&B and Funk while paying homage to his GoGo roots. He draws inspiration from the likes of D’Angelo, Jill Scott and Drake as well as DC GoGo legends such as New Impressionz and The Backyard Band, and his eclectic tastes allow his unparalleled musical versatility to shine through on every track.
Following the lead of DMV contemporaries like GoldLink, Innanet James and Rico Nasty, The EXP is making his own way while staying true to the sounds of the city that made him.”
